Footnotes

  • The map shows the relatively tiny Soviet state of Armenia on a map that includes all the land that at one time or another was under Armenian rule. The map was produced by the Armenian community of New Julfa, the Armenian quarter of Isfahan, established in 1606 following the Persian campaign of Shah Abbas which swept through Ottoman lands to engulf Julfa or Jugna in what is today Nakhchivan.
